Celebrating Mother's Day with Magnolias.

Hello lovelies, next Sunday is Mother's Day, so today we created some cards and a little gift box ready for gifting. We used the new Good Morning Magnolia Bundle which is a stamp set & coordinating dies...it will be available from the 4th June!

But before I start, I'd like to share something a little special. My Aunty just contacted me and reminded me that my Grandmother had magnolia flowers as her wedding bouquet (in 1937) and she even sent me a photo which I'd like to share with you. I now remember the story my mother told me about the flowers - they were kept down in the cellar to keep cool and to stay fresh overnight before the wedding but unfortunately the centres of the flowers were eaten by vermine. They were able to replace them in time for the wedding with fresh ones from a tree in the grounds of the Stirling Hotel. The interesting thing about this is I have lived only a few minutes down the road from this hotel for the past 22 years or so!
